Liverpool and Chelsea are going head to head for AS Roma stopper Alisson, says Italian media outlet Premium Sport, one of the country’s more respected sources.
They suggest that new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri called the Brazilian while he was on holiday and proposed a Chelsea switch with wages of €6m/year.
But it’s made clear that Liverpool are also keen on the Brazilian and are using former team-mate Mo Salah in order to persuade him of our project.
Alisson also knows Roberto Firmino from the national squad, so we hope Bobby’s been filling up his Whatsapp inbox with sweet nothings as well.
What’s more, Paul Joyce, who’s remained tight-lipped on the situation so far, has began following Alisson on Twitter and also the journalist who is claiming we’ve lodged a €60m+€10m bid.

Is this one going to happen?
Who knows – but we think it’s getting to the point now that our interest simply cannot be denied.
Get it done, Liverpool!
